Published on November 25, 2013

November marks 38 years of service for Alive Hospice, and it’s also National Hospice and Palliative Care Month. With this in mind, Nashville Mayor Karl Dean has issued a proclamation celebrating hospice care and those who provide it.

Mayor Dean visited Alive Hospice to present the proclamation during an anniversary celebration on Nov. 20. A few words from the mayor:

“For 38 years, Alive Hospice has played a special role in our community and helps make Nashville the giving and caring city that it is,” Mayor Karl Dean said. “The service Alive Hospice provides is a vital one, and I congratulate and thank them for the special kind of care that they provide.”
